Repro ID: D2932
Description: Striking sailors from the Victoria and Albert Dock branch of the National Union Seamen (NUS) marching with their banner. Labour relations remained bad throughout the 1950s and 1960s and major strikes by dockers and sailors over wages and working arrangements threatened to bring the Port of London to a halt.
